With Chimurenga Renaissance, Seattle hiphop maverick Tendai Maraire and Congolese-American guitarist Hussein Kalonji combine the former’s Zimbabwean musical background with high-energy 21st-century rap machinations. This is a much more extroverted and party-friendly proposition than Shabazz Palaces, the experimental hiphop group to which Maraire contributes percussion and mbira. Still, Chimurenga Renaissance’s forthcoming second album, Girlz with Gunz, represents a significant progression from last year’s riZe vadZimu riZe, featuring as it does more exciting fusion of commanding rhymes, complex rhythms, and richer melodies.
